Some Good Things About The New Depression
The tumbling of the economy into a giant international toilet bowl isn't all bad, paupers--I mean people. Here are some positive aspects of the horrid fiscal crisis:
*You can get a cab.
*You can get a table.
*Lots of leisure time.
*No more crowds to push through in Times Square.
*No more clutter. (You sold all your things.)
*No more clashing accessories. In fact, no more accessories at all.
And, of course, my favorite...
*You don't feel inferior to rich people anymore. There aren't any!
So stop complaining, folks, and enjoy the freedom!
